Today’s Travel Tuesday post is all about Bougatsa. Bougatsa is a Greek breakfast pastry made with crispy phyllo dough. The dough encases a rich custard filling. Bougatsadiko in Athens specializes in this type of pastry. The dough is stretched out in the air, and it is quite impressing to watch. The whole process takes only a few minutes.
